Yes there is absolutely nothing in the news that tells me of any trouble in Strasbourg. Hop on the plane & see for yourself.
What do you mean ???
Likely this member has been reading the Warnings tips on Strasbourg and clicked on "Post a Question" which leads here. It seems like a question out of the blue but it will be asking about a warning they have read.
When there are demonstrations in the rest of France, there are usually demonstrations in Strasbourg. So far as I know, nothing is happening right now. We've been in Strasbourg during a couple demonstrations and it's simple to just walk a block out of your way and avoid them.
Right now don't worry about it. Go and enjoy the Christmas markets.
I can't think a safer city than Strasbourg...

Le Petite France, Terrasse
A few meters from the Covered Bridges, just opposite, is the Vauban Barrage. It permitted to flood the whole south front of the city when necessary and was constructed in approximately 1690 by Tarade, according to the plans of the military engineer Vauban. At the summit of the building is a pleasant panoramic terrace, from which one can contemplate the city skyline and its channels.

History enthusiasts will want...
History enthusiasts will want to see the Maginot line, the line of fortifications built by the French along the German border in the 1930s to prevent a Nazi invasion - and spectacularly outflanked in 1940. The remains of the line are still visible in many places. Probably the easiest to get to from Strasbourg is the Markolsheim Casemate: 'Casemate of Markolsheim - Also - Memorial of the Ligne Maginot du Rhin - Located south of the village of the same name, turn off D468 just south of the village. Casemate 35/3 is located along the road to the Rhine River crossing into Germany. Open from 15 March to 15 June and from 15 September to 15 November, every Sunday. From 15 June to 15 September, it is open every day.' Details from the Maginot Line webpage.
Train. We travelled from...
Train. We travelled from London to Strasbourg via Paris. We used Eurostar (highly recommended) to get to Paris gare de Nord, then an 'ordinary' train to get from Gare de l'Est (next door to gare de Nord - no hassle changing) to Strasbourg. This part of the journey was quite slow, 4 1/2 hours, as it's not a TGV line.
